- August 22, 2023 19:3172’
Despite trailing, Gokulam does not seem too intent to press the BFC defence. The Malabarians have already qualified for the quarters and this approach is logical, to say the least.
- August 22, 2023 19:2767’

- August 22, 2023 19:18GOAL58’ GOAL! BFC 1-0 GKFC- YADAV SCORES!
Robin Yadav goes for goal from a freekick from a long distance. He catches his shot really well. The ball flies, hits the underside of the crossbar and rattles the back of the net. Bishorjit had dived but there was no chance he was getting to that.
- August 22, 2023 19:1253’
A good cross from the left sees Calvin get at the end of the ball. He heads the ball but cannot keep his effort on target. That was a close one.
- August 22, 2023 19:1051’
Pedromo tries to get past his marker on the right touchline but takes a tumble in the process. It is not the best of falls and he is in pain. He should be okay to continue, however.
- August 22, 2023 19:0547’
GKFC is on the attack right from the start. A cross comes in from the right flank but nothing much comes from it.

- August 22, 2023 18:3635’
Bengaluru enjoying a nice spell of possession but has not carved any real chance till now. Gokulam’s defence has been solid till now.

- August 22, 2023 18:2926’
Close- Akhil Praveen has an excellent chance to give a lead to Gokulam. He gets at the end of a cross from the right and heads the ball at goal from close-range. However, his effort is not on target and sails above the crossbar.
- August 22, 2023 18:2222’
GKFC skipper Noufal drills in a cross from the right flank. He had two players to aim for but his ball does not find either. Good defending from the BFC youngsters.
- August 22, 2023 18:2020’
Gokulam Kerala is inviting the pressure and asking the BFC frontline to break down its defence. Till now, the Malabarians have kept it compact at the back.
- August 22, 2023 18:1616’
BFC had a chance to work the GKFC defence from a freekick in a dangerous area. Satendra tries to deliver a low cross but the delivery is disappointing. Gokulam Kerala has the ball again and the pressure dissipates.
- August 22, 2023 18:1414’
It is a bad fall for Shilton as he falls face-first on the ground. He looks to be in pain as he gets medical attention. It is nothing serious however. Some ice and magic spray should do the trick.
- August 22, 2023 18:1312’
Nidhin has space on the right and pings in a good cross inside the BFC box. The Bengaluru backline is alert enough to clear the ball to safety.
- August 22, 2023 18:099’
BFC with its first proper attack of the match. A low cross comes in from the right but the cross is comfortably dealt with by GKFC keeper Bishorjit.

- August 22, 2023 18:042’
It is a bright start from the Gokulam. The Group C topper is enjoying more of the ball in the early minutes of the first-half. BFC, however, is trying to make inroads of its own and not playing an entirely defensive game.
